Be Salt(y) and Light

Join me in my love of food!



I'm Katie, the foodie with the booty! I grew up in Memphis, Tennessee and now live in Dallas, Texas. I currently work in the Marketing Department of a Pediatric Hospital whose mission is to "make life better for children". Although the work I do doesn't directly impact their lives, I still love knowing each and every day that ultimately my mission is to better their lives.  

I am starting a one-year nursing program in May of 2020, with the dream of becoming a labor and delivery nurse. 

In the midst of this crazy season of life with work and school, I have tried to find an outlet that is still doable with my minimal amount of free time. I wanted to find a space to clear my head and just debrief, if you will. 

I have always loved to cook - it is truly how I de-stress. I grew up in a household where each night we would sit down as a family and enjoy an incredibly delicious meal made by my rockstar mom. They weren't just meals she picked up and stuck in the oven. This woman would put her heart and soul into these, each and every night. I loved to just watch her and ask questions about what she was making. I give all my love and passion for cooking to her. 

I love food, I love the process of making it and I love the history behind it. Food brings so much joy to my life - we make friends and laugh over it, we celebrate holidays with it and, most importantly, we bless it. Food is a blessing and I can't wait to share this blessing with each of you!
